Dogs Trust

UPDATE: Our rehoming centres are closed until further notice, however we are now able to rehome a small number of our amazing dogs. Each dog’s profile will let you know if they are looking for a new home. For the time-being, we are unable to register your interest for dogs who are not yet available for rehoming.

Ballymena (Northern Ireland)

Come and say hello!

Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public, but we are now able to start looking for new homes for some of the amazing dogs in our care. At the moment, there are only a small number of dogs who are ready for their new home, and we expect them to be very popular. Please bear with us once we have received your enquiry, and we will be in touch to talk further about whether you could be a perfect match! .

If you need urgent help regarding giving up your dog, please contact us immediately and we will offer you as much advice and support as we can. We’d like to reassure you that our wonderful staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs, while avoiding any close interaction with each other.

We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs get fed, walked and looked after. We’d like to say a big thank to you, for your continued support.

Welcome to Dogs Trust Ballymena. We are a happy, friendly team and would love you to come and visit us at the Centre to see our fantastic facilities and all the waggy tails of our doggy guests. We can care for up to 50 dogs at any one time and our facilities include a training barn, wonderful woodland walks and a big field to run around. We have dedicated rehoming staff who have lots of experience in helping match dogs to their forever families and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have about the rehoming process. We look forward to seeing you very soon.

Did you know our Supporter Relations Officer (SRO), Samuel Reid, can offer free talks to community groups and organise tours of the rehoming centre?  He also deals with all the local enquiries about donations in memory of a loved one, as well as answering any questions about our free Canine Care Card Scheme or legacies. He also organises the annual Fun Day and helps with the social media coverage for the rehoming centre too!
